If there is ever a “pet” peeve of mine…this is it.
People who walk their dogs or let their dogs out and don’t clean up the mess…
Whether it’s my neighborhood or someone else’s!!
So this is the story of the day!!
Comes from a town in Spain called Brunete.
They’ve formed a team of volunteers who secretly wander the streets, looking for people who don't pick up after their dogs.
When they see someone leave poop behind, they walk up to the person and strike up a conversation. And during the conversation, they find out the dog's name and breed. They also pick up the poop.
Afterward, they' plug the dog's info into the city's pet database to figure out who owns the dog and where they live. Then they take the dog poop the person left behind, put it in a box that says "Lost Property," and MAIL it to their house.
In one week, they mailed 147 poop packages, Guess what has happened since? A 70% drop in the amount of dog poop on the streets.
